Working collaboratively has suited us all, though there have been very difficult times. I don’t know how I would have got through it all without your help, caring and knowledgeable professionalism.
For what can be a daunting process at the outset, I found the collaborative process to be ideal for those not conversant with legal procedure. The main attraction of the process itself with a civil and efficient basis in which it was conducted and the main focus on the outcome for the children – and which in hindsight was also probably concluded faster than a one-two-one process.
In my own case an amicable outcome was paramount for us both because of the children.
I think that because of this our children seem to have been unaffected.
We can when required still do “birthdays etc” together.
If you can, it’s better to try and reach your own compromises rather than have them imposed on you.
